Holly Willoughby Praises Her Mum For Helping Out With Childcare Since She's Returned To Work

'That little bit of help is just so appreciated and wonderful.'

Holly Willoughby has praised her own mum for helping her out with childcare since she's gone back to work full-time.

Willoughby, who is mum to Harry, six, Belle, five, and Chester, 19 months, with her husband Dan Baldwin, said her mum Lynne even rustles up dinner for the family every now and then.

"Since I’ve come back to work I’ve been busy with 'This Morning' and other stuff so she’s come up to help with the kids," Willoughby told The Mirror.

"I’ve come home and there has been a shepherd’s pie or chilli con carne."

She returned to host 'This Morning' alongside Phillip Schofield a year later in September 2015.

"To actually come home and have food on the table, the table’s laid, it just feels like I’m going home to my mum’s house so that’s been really nice," she added.

"It’s those simple little things, that little bit of help, that is just so appreciated and wonderful."

As well as presenting 'This Morning', the mum-of-three co-presents 'Celebrity Juice' alongside Fearne Cotton and Keith Lemon. She also presents 'Surprise Surprise' and 'Play to the Whistle'.

Willoughby rarely shares photos of her three children on social media.

However she recently posted an Instagram photo of her daughter, Belle, to celebrate her fifth birthday.

"This little blonde beauty is five today," Willoughby wrote. "Happy birthday Belle. We love you more than you love rainbows."

Willoughby recently confessed on 'Celebrity Juice' that there would be "no more babies".

When discussing maternity leave on the show in April 2016 with Fearne Cotton, Keith Lemon jumped in and said: "I hate it when people get pregnant, they ruin the show don’t they?"

"We’re not having anymore. There’s no more babies! We’re done," Cotton said.

"We’re done," Willoughby agreed.
